A great victory for Ancelotti´s men. Bayern Leverkusen set up a very difficult match and was a worthy opponent at the Allianz Arena. However, Bayern had control of the game at all times and had sufficient patience to achieve a victory of great value.
Thiago put the home team in front with a header in the first half. But nevertheless. Leverkusen levelled the match shortly afterwards with a great left-footed shot from Çalhanoğlu. The nerves did not take hold of Carlo´s team, and they had patience seeking the goal. A patience and a good work that it had its reward after the break. Matt Hummel scored the second and final goal in the 56th minute to delight the fans gathered at the Allianz Arena.
